[image]Carbon Monoxide from Asian Fires - NASA
Intense fires burning in the boreal forests of northern Asia and North America routinely send up plumes of smoke that darken skies many kilometers away. By the end of July 2009, large fires were burning in both Russia and Alaska. This image tracks the smoke from those fires by illustrating the concentration of carbon monoxide in the atmosphere. The image was made with data collected by the Measurements of Pollution in the Troposphere (MOPITT) sensor on NASA«És Terra satellite between July 20 a...
